young leader kim jong-un domestically. >> absolutely. they have been trying since 1998 to launch a long-range missile and they failed in the previous four attempts. they succeeded in this. it's not a rocket that can deliver a major warhead. there are marriajor hurdles to >> they have done in north korea where a lot of people are starving what south korea has been unable to do. >> by choice, actually. >> they haven't launched a satellite into orbit. >> south korea has not. this will undoubtedly spur competition with south korea. you'll see that. you'll probably see south korea respond with more batteries and japan will probably already do that. you have heard that we need to spend more. we spend $10 million a year already on a missile system. it has international ramifications that are going to destabilize. this is why the security council is condemning the move. >> so how much of a real threat to the united states, whether hawaii or the west coast, is this? >> we are not threatened any more today than we were yesterday. let me give you one example. iran put a satellite in orbit in 2009.

away from the anniversary of the death of kim jong-il. he died last year december 17th. so kim jong-un, his son in control, wanted to commemorate that, and also 2012 is a very crucial year for north korea. it is the send tenry of the country's founder. the one in april failed, but it was crucial because it was within this year. so north korea really wanted to get it done before the end of the year. >> paula hancocks, thank you for that. >>> 36 after the hour. a maryland health official is confirming a second person has died there in the fungal meningitis outbreak linked to the tainted steroid injections. the patient died in november and had been reportedly receiving treatment. nationwide now 590 people have been infected. 37 people have died. >>> four players involved in the new orleans saints bounty scandal have had their punishments overturned by paul tabliabue. tabliabue who investigated a second round of appeals calling the october suspensions handed down by current commissioner roger goodell selective and inconsistent. takibliabue places the bulk of e blame on the coaches in hi

that kim jong-un's rule may not be as secure as previously thought. and this kind of rocket launch could deflect any attention from that. tom? >> as you may recall, the last launch there did not go very well at all. >>> next to gaza city, where after 45 years in exile, one of the founders of hamas, khalid meshaal, made a historic return today. the pomp and circumstance surrounding his visit underscored the organization's powerful influence among palestinians. cnn's fred pleitgen was there. >> reporter: he received a triumphal welcome when he entered gaza. tens of thousands of hamas fighters lined the street wearing ski masks and combat fatigues and flashing their weapons, including ak-47s and rocket-propelled grenades. the official reason why meshaal is here after never having been in gaza before is the 25th anniversary of the founding of hamas which the united states considers to be a terrorist organization. one thing you hear on every street corner is hamas is saying they are declaring victory against israel after the armed conflict that happened here about two years ago. now many here

are three scenarios that i potentially see. one, the new leader, kim jong-un wants to send a message domestically that he presides over a powerful military and space operation. secondly, that that space launch failed and this one will not. another reason might be the presidential elections in south korea, which are december 19th. maybe they want to influence or disrupt them. the third is the traditional north korea action to get attention. here we are. we've been out of the headlines, middle east, gaza, rockets there, we're back. and this is what we're capable of doing. those are the three potential reasons that i see. one most likely being kim jun jung-il. he wants to show his people that he governs a powerful nation that wants to show it's nation. >> he is approaching, as chris said, the first anniversary of his rule. how should the international community react when this launch takes place, assuming it's successful. >> i would say the launch will happen. obviously, it's a test of missile technology. the international community, the security council, will invoke more sanctions, the

, kim jong-un, would pick a different path than his father, that he would be more moderate. i think still there's possibilities of dialogue. i'm not sure when. i think he did this for domestic reasons. the last missile launch failed. he only has one year in leadership. he wants to show his people that despite their economic problems, they have military and missile technolo technology, that they're a major power in space, militarilmilita buttress themselves with the north korean military. it was mainly a domestic shot he took, but also he said to the world, you have to deal with me. i'm a major player. >> so it's for domestic audience largely here. should the united states and should others be worried this launch could mean there's a capability to hit the western coast of the united states? is that a concern what actually was accomplished here beyond the politi politics? >> it was a violation of missile launches, number one. so there will be action by the security council. i don't think they have the capability to reach the united states right now, but obviously, their missile techno

and then suddenly on calendar, e for many, and kim jong-il got very lucky. the three latest attempts had all failed. and this one appears, appears to be a success. something is in orbit. >> we know the rocket range is something like 5,000, 6,000 kilometers. what does the distance tell you? >> well, it is technology. it is a three stage rocket. that's what is significant here. >> tells you it is advanced. >> this is 1950s scud technology they built, a lot of people thought they would never get this far with it. but they made incremental advances. so in that sense, it poses a threat. remember, while they were celebrating in the streets of pyongyang, there were probably also celebrating in the control rooms in iran because those two share their missile technology. >> what about ally, china? china -- >> that was a big surprise. >> let me quote, expressed regret, quote/unquote. regret from china? >> china has been their backer, tried to support them quietly in all these talks. but for them to come out today and say we regret that this happened -- >> north korea further isolating themselves. >> further i
